Reflected in the heart Are joys, hopes and thoughts Vibrant lights so beautiful They fill up the soul’s core With trembling dreams Liquid love pouring, emptying Life of its doubt, its dread Darkness that never Expects to be slaughtered By wonders so brilliant They light up the world Echoed in the silence Are smiles and laughter Striking kindness Making the mind recall All the pleasure personified In memories of affection Brought to life in one Who believes and sees Expressions of grace Raining down from God Coloring the moments In precious pearls Of wisdom and warmth Assuring us all That faith will overcome Replicated in the light Soft clouds of insight Breathtaking moments, praise Shining, weightless Capturing the heart’s desire In a flame, a blazing fire Miracles of love Grow to combine the thrill With the unending smiles Exposed by the Son The One who knows this life Despite being full of strife Trains our souls, our minds To listen to His voice Knowing we have a choice But promising hearts That He will indeed save Mirrored by sweet love Sent down from God above A still, small voice Securing us and our purpose With faith that pours His blood over our soul Covering with His redemptive Plan, glory falling all around Abiding in the love That glows with grace Calms the craziness Reawakens the heart to praise With knowing, the word To relieve our aches Destroy our doubts, our dread With evidences of grace His never ending deliverance As He saves us from the past The pain, remorse and regret The shame that longs to reject The darkness and torment He saves… completely, To the uttermost With salvation that opens the gates Into heaven and eternity!
